Manufacturer Universal

Lady Bug x 3 Sets

Not working, for repair

Lot of three original, Universal Lady Bug arcade circuit boards from 1982 that do not work.  Consider these fixer upper boards. The one video board is complete and boots with color issues.  The other boards all have issues as well, some are complete, some  are missing socketed ICs, including their roms, a processor and some proms.  They were all tested and do not work when complete.  One of the video boards shows some signs of oxidation on some of the ICs.  The rest should be repairable given a good cleaning, some skills and time.

See photos for more details, boards are sold non-working and as-is.

Quick Game Facts
Lady Bug

Lady Bug was one of the first offerings of Universal, a company best known for its Mr. Do!’s series of games. The game falls under the “maze genre” with game play similar to Pac-Man, but in this case unique enough to make it stand on its own. The goal is simple: your Lady Bug must eat all of the dots in the maze while avoiding different insects (each round has a different family of insects). Some of the maze’s walls can revolve, allowing the player to better dodge enemy insects.

Among the games other twists are two bonuses that are collected by eating colored letters on the screen (similar to Mr. Do!). If you spell the word “EXTRA”, you’re awarded an extra Lady Bug. Spell the word “SPECIAL” and receive a free credit for another game.
